line. the state department put out a time line. the cia put out a time line or its version of events during attacks and in the aftermath. but what we don't have a good sense of is where the president of the united states was from minute to minute. i think the republicans will insist on that and i think they should. bill: he said he issues his directives immediately after the attack and during attack. where does that take you? where do you end up? >> that's the key question. when the president of the united states issues a directive, everybody flies into action. the military records what he told them to do, what they have been instructed to do and from that follows a series of steps and people execute his directives. we need to know what the directive was, who it was given to what they did with it. the president said he instructed every bit of help be provided to the people on the ground there. we know that didn't happen. we need a better accounting of why that didn't happen if the president said it should have. bill: there is a statement today at 1:00. i'm not sure there will be ques

cain knows full well there was cia engagement not just with these talking points but with the actual operation around the ambassador in benghazi. everyone knows what the real story is behind here in terms of the operation, in terms of susan rice's independence, and if you want to take a sunday show talking points performance as the measure of a secretary of state, you're on very thin ground in terms of how anyone for any position could get nominated in the future. >> let me follow this thinking here. who is going to take the bullet for what looked to be the failure to protect chris stevens? who is going to take the bullet for what looks to be a misrepresentation in real time as to what happened? who is going to pay the price? >> certainly -- >> first of all, jay go first. >> i think certainly republicans want it to be susan rice. they're essentially calling for her scalp. and you had white house press secretary jay carney out there at the same time going even farther than rice was and talking about how this was all just due to a protest and not really -- not having much to do with te

. ambassador cameron munter was very aware of what went on with the cia. if you look at the drone strikes over the past four years, 2010 over 122 joined strikes. the numbers have been dropping since then is the highest number we have had. president obama has authorized six times more joined strikes than george w. bush did in his two terms in office. the numbers reflect 25% from that point in 2012. i think this is a very good thing. maybe because we have a tactic doesn't mean we should employ all the time. the army chief of staff, general gianni. you know, i think that is a good point. if you look at the victims of these strikes and how many civilians that we think -- the civilian casualty rate is in the low digits. pakistan, you know, we enjoy a good political rating down from about 20% and the drones are part of that story. that is a pretty high cost. i think because of the work that people that cameron munter have done, saying that we need to be more discriminatory. we don't need all of these lights. it does not really serve our interests. the cost is really alienating the pakistani populati

't that the cia change? they're the ones who edited the talking points so that it wouldn't say al qaeda and i think they used the word to protect their sources, it would say extremist. they made that edit, which to me again seems to go back to the intelligence community. it's not that susan rice got a long list of talking points and said, ooh, i don't want to say al qaeda. let me cross that out. i'm going to use the word extremist. she was given talking point that is removed that word al qaeda and put extremist. isn't that correct? >> who in the administration said susan rice should be the person out there talking about this in the first place? >> so you just don't like her? >> there was the real time information -- no. the real time information that our consulate was under attack. and i'll tell you what bothers me is that someone in the white house situation room or at the state department or the pentagon said it's not worth it. we can't go in and help them. and to understand how long the attack continued, that's really troublesome. the fact that the united states cannot respond within an ho
